Boxes may be Shaker-plain, Asian-sleek or ethnically ornate. We may lift a lid, slide a panel or swivel a hinge to peer inside, touching memories, or maybe objects. We remember where we put something by the box we put it in — proud in plain sight or stowed like Russian dolls in a box, in a drawer, in a room, in your heart. Advanced tip: give smaller holiday gifts in ribbon-tied boxes that are themselves gift-worthy. No wrapping necessary, or wanted!
